Description

Strengthen your Child’s Logical Thinking and Problem Solving Skills with Coding


Give your child a headstart in Coding and let us keep him/her occupied at our full day 2-day special coding camp. The camp include 10 hours of instruction from our highly-qualified tutors.

Children will be using Scratch, a graphics-based computer coding language developed by Mitchel Resnick, LEGO Papert Professor of Learning Research and head of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT media labs.

At the end of the course, students will feel confident and recognize their potential to create, design and develop computational media which they enjoy in their daily lives.

Most importantly, this programme strengthens their logical and problem solving skills which are useful in many aspects of life, be it immediately in their studies (e.g. Mathematics Problem Sums, Science, etc) or in the future.

Experience the Coding Lab advantage with our MIT-inspired curriculum. Voted "Best Coding Curriculum" by parents, our award-winning workshops challenge students to think logically and mathematically, with a strong emphasis on inquiry-based learning and open ended instruction.
